Frank Ocean released his new album on Saturday.

To his fans’ delight, the much anticipated “Blonde” came along with a bonus—a magazine titled “Boys Don’t Cry,” which many thought would be the name of the album, according to Death and Taxes. The magazine is only available at four pop-up locations in four major cities: New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and London. It was given away for free, and of course some are already starting to resell it on eBay for as high as $1,000.

The 360-page magazine includes interviews, original photography from Ocean himself, and poetry. One of the poems was written by none other than the eccentric artist Kanye West. His subject? McDonald’s.

Follows is the full poem:

McDonalds Man McDonalds Man
The french fries had a plan
The french fries had a plan
The salad bar and the ketchup made a band
Cus the french fries had a plan
The french fries had a plan
McDonalds Man
McDonalds
I know them french fries have a plan
I know them french fries have a plan
The cheeseburger and the shakes formed a band
To overthrow the french fries plan
I always knew them french fries was evil man
Smelling all good and shit
I don’t trust no food that smells that good man
I don’t trust it
I just can’t
McDonalds Man
McDonalds Man
McDonalds, damn
Them french fries look good tho
I knew the Diet Coke was jealous of the fries
I knew the McNuggets was jealous of the fries
Even the McRib was jealous of the fries
I could see it through his artificial meat eyes
And he only be there some of the time
Everybody was jealous of them french fries
Except for that one special guy
That smooth apple pie

For more, watch:

West actually opened up his own pop-up stores for the weekend to sell Life of Pablo-branded merchandise. Though it’s uncertain how lucrative the project was, Fortune reported that a similar pop-up store in New York City earlier this year brought in over $1 million in a single weekend.
